Benton Medical and Dental Center Mission Statement

Welcome to Benton Medical and Dental Center! Our Mission is to provide comprehensive, quality primary health care for all our patients in medically underserved rural communities. Our objective is to provide services regardless of the patient's ability to pay.


What is an FQHC?


SEMO Health Network is proud to be your Federally Qualified Community Health Center. A Community Health Center is just that, a health center based in the community. The FQHC is a federal designation from the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) that is assigned to non-profit or public health care organizations that serve insured patients, uninsured patients, private pay patients or medically underserved populations.


FQHCs are specifically located in an area that is designated as a Medically Underserved Area/Population (MUA or MUP). FQHCs provide their services to all persons regardless of ability to pay, and charge for services on a Board approved sliding-fee scale that is based on patients family income and size.


Because they receive funds from the Federal government, all FQHCs must operate under a consumer Board of Directors governance structure, and provide comprehensive primary health, oral, and mental health/substance abuse services to persons in all stages of the life cycle. FQHCs must comply with Section 330 program expectations/requirements and all applicable federal and state regulations.
